Review Toshiba Satellite P855-107 Notebook


Classy one-man show. The website for the Toshiba Satellite P855-107 states the notebook is a “Powerful and attractive multimedia entertainment” device. This claim arouses our curiosity and makes us wonder if this is an empty promise or if Toshiba can...

Good workmanship, Timeless looks, Good equipment, High CPU performance, Full HD resolution, Suitable for gaming, Glasses-free 3D, Excellent speakers, The high-quality workmanship. The device is also nice to look at

Highly reflective screen, Unstable display lid, Slow hard disk, Loud Blu-Ray drive, Possible throttling, Short battery life, A better cooling system and a quieter Blu-Ray drive would make watching videos even more fun. And of course a bigger battery....

Toshiba Satellite P855


The 15.6-inch mainstream laptop is the crew-cab pickup of the computer world. A lot of different people buy them for a lot of different reasons. That means the chassis must be flexible and capable of handling the expectations of people laying down a...

Attractive but practical exterior ; Very little bloatware ; Great Harmon/Kardon speakers ; Quick performance ; Entry-level version is well priced

Mushy keyboard feel ; Poor battery life ; Expensive variants aren’t a good value

Toshiba’s P855 is a beautifully designed entry into the mainstream segment. It’s certainly one of the better-looking PCs available and, unlike similarly shiny competitors...

Toshiba Satellite P855-32G review


Great performance at a reasonably low price for this 15-incher

Plenty of power ; Great screen ; Premium speaker setup ; Huge array of connections ; Handles the latest gaming

Poor keyboard ; Too much bloatware ; No 1080p ; No Blu-ray drive ; Average battery life

The Toshiba P855-32G is an updated version of the Toshiba P850 home entertainment laptop released earlier this year, featuring more power for the masses.

Toshiba Satellite P855-32J review


The Toshiba P855-32J doesn't go all-out for the senses, and Toshiba has chosen to eschew the crazy case designs and colour schemes popular with the likes of Alienware. The Toshiba P855-32J tips the scales at around 2.94kg – so the laptop certainly...

How you rate this laptop will depend how much you prize its 3D screen. You’re paying a premium of several hundred pounds for this privilege, so you’ll have to really want it. Take away the 3D, and the rest of the laptop is mid-range rather than...

Toshiba Satellite P855-307 review


A strong first outing for Ivy Bridge, although the Satellite's screen is slightly disappointing given the price

Overall, this is a great first outing for Intel’s latest processor, reaching performance milestones that weren’t possible last year. The Satellite P855 has ample performance, in both 2D applications and 3D games, plenty of storage space and great...

Toshiba Satellite P855


A laptop with an aluminium-coated body and glasses-free 3D screen. Is it worth forgetting Ultrabooks for?

The Toshiba Satellite P855 isn’t a big step forward in any respect, but is a respectable mid/high-end laptop. It uses a fairly good-looking aluminium-coated body, has decent connectivity and starts at a reasonable £599, sans 3D. We’re not convinced the...

Toshiba Satellite P855


The keyboard isn't too bad once you get used to it. The mouse is really horrible, but if you have an external mouse / keyboard AND you don't use the real one it's all good.

Toshiba Satellite P855


Enjoy when it is not down. I bought the Sat. S855 model 6 months ago and had to have HDD serviced twice. And tech support gives you the run around.

Toshiba Satellite P855-307


soft touch keyboard ergonomically beveled to cause very little discomfort with extensive typing ; no noise keys - makes it very easy to type without distracting others or being distracted (may be a con to some that like the typing noise) ; high...

Generic design - gives it no independent style from other Toshiba laptops or even older models of the Satellite series ; Mousepad - slightly off-centered to the left gives right-hand people a disadvantage in typing or using it - i find myself...

Toshiba Satellite P855-307


Mouse control panel placed too far left, Built for LEFT handed person. Needs to be placed in centre. Touch pad control buttons not defined enough, need to be made more as switches. Current design causes RIGHT Click to be made when LEFT is required, due...
